What is Go Parks?

Go Parks is a project giving the residents of Coventry new and exciting ways to use parks and green spaces in the city. Go Parks will bring everything from sport and physical activity to wellbeing and culture elements into your local park.

With an increasing number of people now using parks and greenspaces for activity as a result of COVID-19, we’re promoting ways to be active in parks that are fun, simple and safe.

Go Parks Giveaway!

Between 11 November – 14 December 2020, Go Parks is running a free-to-enter prize giveaway.

The Go Parks Giveaway can be entered during a visit to your local park.

Simply look out for a Go Parks banner or poster in noticeboards, scan the QR code with your smartphone, and complete the form. Banners and posters with the QR code on, can be found in a number of parks across the city.

View a map and list of parks that have Go Parks Giveaway banners installed.

Remember, there will also be posters and QR codes in noticeboards of other parks and green spaces in the City where you can enter too!

The Go Parks prizes up for grabs will be revealed soon but expect to see some popular physical activity gadgets and equipment. Terms and conditions apply upon entry.

Please adhere to government guidelines while visiting and exercising in the parks.
